I want to start off by saying thank you for sharing your trust with me. It can be so hard to give trust to another so I want you to know that a greatly value the trust that you have give to me.
Let me introduce myself, my name is Ashly and I am clinical social worker in Texas. I have been in this field a little over 10 years, starting in 2009. I started out at the most entry level position in the field and through time, schooling, and experience I have become able to offer counseling services to all those who are searching for support and a little bit of extra help. I share this with you to offer a little bit about myself to you as well as so you can you know about my background in this field. I believe it is important for you to feel comfortable with me in order for you to get the best experience from our meeting together.
I achieved my Bachelor’s in Psychology through University of Mary-Hardin Baylor in 2010 and my Master’s degree through University of Texas at Arlington in 2015. I have experience with ages from 4 to 94, through all stages and walks of life. I have experience in assisting with depression, anxiety, trauma/abuse, life changes, chronic health issues, and end of life. I have worked in non-profit agencies with youths and their families, interned with veterans, and currently working with adults and seniors in dialysis. I have also had experience inworking in animal assisted therapy with horses. I work with a variety of theories and techniques that will be tailored to you and your experiences. There is not a one size fits all for counseling and you are the expert of you.

I absolutely love Ashly she is sweet and understands what I need. She has helped me grow so much in the short 3 months I've been seeing her.

I probably needed counseling much sooner, then I suffered a miscarriage and realized I needed more than my SSRI and friends/family to pick myself back up again. I thought I would only have a few sessions to get me through the initial trauma of miscarriage.... and now I’ve been talking to Ashly weekly for the past 4 months. She is very gentle, kind, empathetic and reliable. Ashly has helped me navigate day to day relationships with family, friends, co-workers, and significant others. Wonderful therapist!

Just the kind of support I needed when I felt like I’d lost all hope. I’m glad I have Ashly to keep me grounded.

She is one of the most positive people I ever met. She makes sure I am okay off of schedule. Which is great.
